Williams, Stanley Cup thrill crowd (Northumberland Today)
COBOURG - Hundreds of supporters from not just Cobourg, but also the rest of Northumberland County and beyond, welcomed Justin Williams of the Los Angeles Kings home Saturday to celebrate his third Stanley Cup victory and first Conn Smythe Trophy win.
